    Mornin everyone

    just wondering is it ok to use the tesco ultraslim shakes as ur breakfast and lunch as long as they are pointed?reason for asking is because I am trying to curb my eating habits and i have tried this before and they do tend to fill me more than cereal etc.. iv pointed this at 6 points each? if im hungry im goin to snack on fruit and then have a nice dinner when i get home :D

    As long as you point what you put in your mouth then it's fine! I posted something similar a while ago about replacing a meal with a protein bar because between work, nursery runs and looking after my children i didn't always have time for lunch and i got a mixed response because it wasn't 'proper food'. However i think if it works for you, although probably not the WW ideal, then as long as it's pointed it should be fine x

    If youre planning on having them as lunch and breakfast, wouldnt you be as well just following that diet since its 2 shakes and a meal anyway?

    WW is designed as a lifestyle change and realistically thats not sustainable long term, but its fine as a diet. Would you not be better doing U/S to lose weight then move to WW once youre nearer goal?

    Id imagine you can :)

    I think youd find it easier doing one or the other rather than mixing the 2 :)

    Hi. I used to have a slim fast shake for breakfast on the days that I work and counting them into my points. But I now make a smoothie with 150g fat free plain yogurt and whatever fruit I fancy and this is pointed at 2 points. Still fills me up till lunch but saving points too!
    Hope this helps

    No the fruit is zero points. The 150g fat free yogurt is 2 points. I usually put a banana, a hand full if blueberries and some strawberries in x
